- Excellent date night spotSteveDined on 11/15/2014If you're looking for authentic Italian, this is the place to go. Went for a date night and it was perfect. First off, using the online reservation was my first time and I thought it works very well. The design and layout of the restaurant was really nice and really goes with the Italian feel. The only I would change about the food is the bread. If the bread was coming fresh out of the oven or was nice and warm, that would really up my value for Mimma's.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- TerryVIPDined on 11/8/2014Amidst a sea of new restaurtant options, Mimas is truly a gem of an Italian restaurant and they deliver wonderful traditional italian cuisine. It remains a standout. They have a great menu and deliver service that is very attentive and caring. You feel like you are inside the house of a long tradition of great italian dining. Would recommend this to anyone who wants a great italian dinner with a warm and memorable experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- First visit and we'll be back.OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 11/6/2014Food and service were top notch. 5 specials du jour in addition to an already generous menu. And relatively inexpensivefor the quality, quantity, and atmoshpere. It was a slow night so cannot really judge the acoustics.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very nice!OpenTable Diner Since 2003Dined on 10/31/2014I love the character of this place: good food in a well run restaurant with obvious personal touches by the owners. Classy, but unpretentious and so friendly. Definitely a good place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Terrible experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/25/2014I have been to the restaurant on a number of occasions but this was the worst experience I have ever had Ina restaurant. The table was badly located and the restaurant seemed to be over-booked, significantly. I made a mistake by staying as it got worse as the evening progressed. The noise, the service, etc.Special Features:
- Food was greatNewcomerVIPDined on 10/19/2014Not so many restaurants open on Sunday evening so that's nice about Mimma's. There were 4 in our party and we all enjoyed or entrees. I have eaten there several times and the food has been great every time. Their marinara sauce is excellent.Special Features:
- Always a successDinerDined on 10/19/2014We have no complaints for the food or service. Only reason food was rated 4 instead of 5 stars is that the entree serving for a few of the pasta dishes seemed small. Unless you had an appetizer or soup or salad, it wasn't enough to eat. But what we did eat was excellent.Special Features:
- Disappointingryueh4567Dined on 10/14/2014My fiance & I had our first date at Mimma's and were considering hosting our rehearsal dinner there. I made the reservation & was told that someone would talk to us about the rehearsal dinner when we came in. That night our waiter was very inattentive and was mainly focused on the large group next to us. We asked another waiter multiple times for things we needed. No one talked to us or mentioned the rehearsal dinner. Mimma talked to the group next to us, but never spoke to us. I was very disappointed because we had such a great experience the first time. We didn't enjoy our experience the second time, and it was upsetting that they didn't take the time to talk with us. We are now looking for other places to have our rehearsal dinner.
- First time-Last timemafarmerDined on 10/13/2014Made our reservation to celebrate our 30th anniversary & received the window view as requested. The wine was a smoky smooth red. We shared an eggplant appetizer- fairly tasty. But after that- The salad -spinach, greens & tomato- was store bought" when fresh greens & tomatoes are still available at the farmer's markets. I ordered a pork dish - one of their specials for the night. The waitress tells me they served the last one ( really with a 6pm reservation & almost empty restaurant?). I ordered a ravioli dish instead-their signature dish-Bland- couldn't distinguish the seafood mush. My husbands ravioli dish- tiny shrimp & tasteless. Complimentary cake-not tasty. Staff were polite. Overall food exp.-a washout on a rainy night.
- Friday Celebrationss150Dined on 10/10/2014The food, the service, and the attention to detail made for a great Friday evening meal at Mimmas Cafe. Frankie is a great server - knows the menu and helped make great selections. Mimmas is a great neighborhood choice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent food and service!!!mrivDined on 10/3/2014The food was delicious, fresh ingredients, vibrant flavors!! And the service was A++. Great dining experience!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Never disappointsDanMVIPDined on 9/26/2014In this visit, we celebrated my parents' 40th anniversary, and Mimmas did not disappoint. We always have a nice meal with a good atmosphere and great service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A reliable old gemFabFourDined on 8/29/2014My wife and I and another couple dine together regularly and are always seeking out reliable places with great food, reasonable prices and a nice ambience. We have now been to Mimma's 3 times, and every time have walked out very satisfied. It may no longer be as trendy or chic as it once may have been (although it is in the heart of the Brady Street restaurant row), but wow, we have had three fabulous meals. As connoisseurs of Bruschetta, we love their spin on it. The house dressing was terrific. Food was hot, portions were respectable for the price. Dessert options excellent. Service was prompt and cheerful. This will continue to be on our list of favorites.Special Features:
- Marvelous Mimma'srobinlikestoeatDined on 8/24/2014Nestled for years in the Brady Street neighborhood, Mimma's never fails to delight. The wide array of tasty pasta dishes are supplemented by tempting fresh seafood and meat specials -- all prepared exquisitely with a nod to Italy. Mimma warmly greets guests at the door and for the next few hours, you are pampered with great service. Don't miss the grilled calamari appetizer and by all means, save room for dessert!Special Features:
- First visit, will go againDLobDined on 8/23/2014Food was excellent, fresh and the service was incredible!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- dinerVIPDined on 8/17/2014Never disappointed with a meal at Mimma's. Had a family dinner there a bit later on a Sunday evening, and the place was pretty quiet, but they were very accommodating of our group (including a squirmy 20mo old). The food was well prepared and presented, and the desserts were great. They were out of a few items, which was a bit disappointing, but not unexpected at the end of a week. Overall an enjoyable experience.I would recommend this to a friend.
- don't forget Mimma'spatrick13Dined on 8/12/2014First off, The service was KILLER. The food was amazing and although years back it may have been the trendy place, it now gets overlooked a bit. It should not. Mimma's was outstanding all the way around.Special Features:

- Wonderful!Ng09Dined on 7/25/2014Mimas had amazing food! Great seafood pasta options at a reasonable price, and the best part was the didnt skimp on the amount of seafood given. I got a stuffed lobster and crab ravioli dish that was amazing. Great service!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great happy hourOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/25/2014Went here with a friend for his birthday for happy hour. The service was great, food and drinks were delicious.Special Features:
- PleaseandThankYouDined on 6/28/2014A quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of Brady Street on a Saturday night. Relaxing ambience. Friendly staff. However, the food was disappointing. The bread before the appetizer was difficult to break apart, let alone enjoyable after the struggle. It was too chewy in the middle and was encompassed by a seemingly stale crust. The olive oil that came for dipping that we'd hoped would redeem the bread's disappointment tasted heavily of anchovies. The bruschetta did not appease our appetite either; the spices were far too overwhelming to be enjoyable. Thankfully our main dish of bowtie pasta, chicken sausage, red pepper flakes in a creamy sauce was satisfying.Special Features:
- Great foodOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 6/21/2014Pasta was homemade and delicious. Service was great. I'll come again!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Cheersuh60crewchiefDined on 6/8/2014Making a reservation and arriving it was as if they already knew me. They placed us by the window, made it special as they could for us. They knew my first name and remembered it despite many other guests coming though. Treated us with respect and humor and everything one could hope for. The staff had zeal to serve. The owner made it a real place, not an impersonal eatery.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great ExperienceRoscoFoodieDined on 5/24/2014This was our first time to Mimmas and we could not be happier. Great service, great food, great beer and wine selection. The menu was extensive so everyone in our group of 8 had no problem finding something they loved. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, the specials, and the wine and beer list. We will definitely be going back to Mimmas!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great on BradyjrhoDined on 5/11/2014MY family had always raved about Mimmas. I took my 8 month pregnant wife there for her first mother's day. She had gnocchi and it was great. I had the special, skate wing; it was cooked perfectly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good but not greatMexicanaddictVIPDined on 5/11/2014The whole night was just 'good', nothing great or wonderful about it. The food was good but nothing I'm excited to have again, very good flavor tho. The service was lacking and the server was very, very loud, not sure why he was screaming everything especially since it is a smaller place and everyone within 20 ft could hear him. It took 10 min to get our water and the normal menu as they only first provided us with the Mother's Day Special. All in all a decent night, not sure if I would NOT recommend it but it's not a place I'm itching to go back to.Special Features:
- Never DisappointedjpeatsDined on 5/10/2014We have been to Mimmas on several occasions and have been very please each time. The food is marvelous and the service second to none. If you like quality Italian food it is the place to go.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Outstanding Placekrzeee1VIPDined on 5/2/2014This was are 1st visit and it was exceptional. From the food, to the service, and being able to say hello to Mimma was a great way to leave the place. Definitely a place to come to again and again.
